I just formatted my HDD, and split it into 2. I was going to use 30gig for Windows XP and it's stuff, and another 10gig for linux. I recently partitioned at school in class as part of a lesson, and all I had to do was creat a partition and then format it. Later, I was able to go into My Computer and format D (which should have been the leftover HD space). However, this is not the case with my XP home. It says my C drive has 30gig, but there is no other drives. So, does that mean I should pop in my XP cd and format another partition, or what? The only way I know of doing it is through the XP install disk. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I do hate trial & error.
